When you can, you will have five products to choose from:

  • R7 250
  • R7 260X
  • R9 270X
  • R9 280X
  • R9 290X

AMD only provides 3D Mark Fire Strike scores for performance. I assume they are using the final score, and not the “graphics score” although they were unclear.

View Full Size

The R7 250 is the low end card of the group with 1GB of GDDR5. Performance, according to 3DMark scores (>2000 on Fire Strike), is expected to be about two-thirds of what an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti can deliver. Then again, that card retails for about ~$130 USD. The R7 250 has an expected retail value of less than < $89 USD. This is a pretty decent offering which can probably play Battlefield 3 at 1080p if you play with the graphics quality settings somewhere around “medium”. This is just my estimate, of course.

View Full Size

The R7 260X is the next level up. The RAM has been double over the R7 250 to 2GB of GDDR5 and its 3DMark score almost doubled, too (> 3700 on Fire Strike). This puts it almost smack dab atop the Radeon HD 6970. The R7 260X is about $20-30 USD cheaper than the HD 6970. The R7 is expected to retail for $139. Good price cut while keeping up to date on architecture.

View Full Size

The R9 270X is the low end of the high end parts. With 2GB of GDDR5 and a 3DMark Fire Strike score of >5500, this is aimed at the GeForce 670. The R7 270X will retail for around ~$199 which is about $120 USD cheaper than NVIDIA’s offering.

View Full Size

The R9 280X should be pretty close to the 7970 GHz Edition. It will be about ~$90 cheaper with an expected retail value of $299. It also has a bump in frame buffer over the lower-tier R9 270X, containing 3GB of GDDR5.

View Full Size

Not a lot is known about the top end, R9 290X, except that it will be the first gaming GPU to cross 5 TeraFLOPs of compute performance. To put that into comparison, the GeForce Titan has a theoretical maximum of 4.5 TeraFLOPs.

View Full Size

If you are interested in the R9 290X and Battlefield 4, you will be able to pre-order a limited edition package containing both products. Pre-orders open “from select partners” October 3rd. For how much? Who knows.

Radeon HD 7970 Launch Review [ Introduction ]

Product: AMD Radeon HD 7970 Video Card
Company: AMD
Author: James Prior
Date: December 24th, 2011

Introduction

At the inaugural AMD Fusion Developer Summit in June, 2011, Eric Demers and Rick Bergman looked Rage3D in the eye and promised the next generation of Radeon GPUs would launch at the end of 2011. Two of those three are with us as we move deep into the Yuletide season, with Rick Bergman now CEO of Synaptics, Inc. Before his watch ended, AMD’s graphics group put the final touches to their third generation DirectX 11 architecture, which is also one of many firsts – first to DirectX 11.1; first to 28nm process technology; first to over 4Bn transistors; first to feature some genuinely good power saving technology; and the first AMD single GPU product to return to the huge, monolithic expensive die price point of over $500USD – well over, in fact, at $549USD, but still at a die size smaller than the HD 6970 Cayman or HD 5870 Cypress chips.

Under the Southern Islands codename, the GPU core is known as Tahiti XT. The board sold by AMD’s Add-in Board (AIB) partners like ASUS, Sapphire, MSI et al, is known as the AMD Radeon HD 7970.

AMD Radeon HD 7970 Specifications:

  • 28nm Graphics Core Next architecture using 4.31Bn transistors
  • 2048 Stream Processors
  • 925Mhz Engine Clock
  • 1375MHz (5.5Gbps) 3GB GDDR5
  • 384-bit Memory Bus
  • 264GB/s memory bandwidth

  • Supports Fast HDMI and Positional Audio
  • DirectX 11.1 / OpenCL 1.2 / OpenGL 4.2 / C++ AMP
  • 250W Board Power limited by PowerTune
  • <3W Idle power under ZeroCore Power

AMD Dual-GPU HD 7990 could Arrive March 2012

Image representing AMD as depicted in CrunchBase

First January, but now its March. It’s pretty save to state that the Radeon HD 7900 series cards will be released early 2012, maybe even January. However we have not even crossed that point yet already we are seeing rumors that the dual-GPU Radeon HD 7990 would be launched in March, which would be CeBIT time.

 

The 7990 is based on the Tahiti GPU which would be two Radeon HD 7970 or HD 7950 cores.

 

The Radeon HD 7990 will most probably also use the new liquid chamber cooling solution that AMD said previously that it will be included in the HD 7970 and HD 7950 reference designs.

 

According to the Sunnyvale-based chip maker, this brings a series of improvements over the old vapor chamber technology, while also being easier to manufacture. Radeon HD 7900-series cards use AMD’s Next Generation Core (NGC) architecture that was designed to offer improved performance and functionality in GPGPU environment.

 

Before coming out with the dual-GPU Radeon HD 7990, AMD will release not just the HD 7970 and HD 7950, but also a series of mid-range models manufactured using TSMC’s 28nm production node.

 

These will feature the VLIW4 (very-long instruction word) architecture introduced with the Radeon HD 6900-series GPUs.

 

Nvidia’s next-generation graphics cores, code-name Kepler, which are built using the same 28nm TSMC fabrication node, will also arrive in 2012 and will be officially announced in December of this year, according to a recent report.

 

AMD 28nm Radeon HD 7000 GPUs Mass Production

 

 

Guru3D.com ImageAMD is slowly but steadily to release of its next-generation Radeon HD 7000 graphics cards as reports suggest the company has already started mass production of these GPUs which are fabricated using TSMC advanced 28nm technology.

 

The official launch of these chips is expected to happen in the first quarter of 2012, according to DigiTimes, the same source that revealed the graphics cores have entered mass production.

 

If this report turns out to be true, then AMD won’t be able to deliver on its promise of releasing the first Southern Islands parts by the end of this year.

 

The main problem faced by the Sunnyvale-based chip maker seems to be TSMC’s inability to improve the yields of its 28nm fabrication process.

 

Furthermore, the foundry just started volume production of chips based on the 28nm node at the start of this week.

 

From the leaks that made it to the Web in the last couple of months, we know that AMD’s upcoming Radeon HD 7000 graphics card series will be comprised of low- and mid-range solutions based on the VLIW4 architecture introduced with the Radeon HD 6900 GPU series as well as from high-end solutions in the HD 7900 range.

 

The latter series will use the Next Generation Core (NGC) architecture that we have covered in a series of previous articles. The key aspect of this architecture is that it will improve the performance and functionality of GPGPU computing.

 

In addition to the new architecture, AMD has reveled a couple of weeks ago, that Tahiti GPUs will use a new cooling system that replaces the usual vapor chambers with a more advanced technology based on a liquid chamber design.
